Blackboard "Crocodoc" Tool Outage

Mon, 04/07/2014 - 3:06pm -- by Harmony Garletts

Blackboard has reported a widespread issue with the Crocodoc tool.  This is the tool that runs the inline grading, so the issue can cause problems in the submission and grading of assignments, blogs and journals.  We have a ticket open with Blackboard and will update you when the issue is resolved.
